What are my various genetic seedling choices and what are the key differences among them?

No longer are pine seedlings a commodity purchase so it’s important to know your options. Research and development have brought many choices for every landowner and the ability to improve the return on investment on their pine forest.

As loblolly pine is the most important tree for commercial reforestation in the U.S. South, there are two other options for this important species in addition to Varietals: conventional Open-Pollinated (OP) and Mass Control Pollinated (MCP®).

What is the appropriately adapted seed source for my planting location

Not knowing the seed source of your pine seedlings can be devastating. Pine seedlings produced from seed with Florida parentage won’t survive or reach their full potential on a site in Virginia. Experienced seedling providers such as ArborGen can provide the correct geographic seed source and genetic performance data to landowners.

What kind of customer support should I expect regarding my pine seedlings, before, during and after the sale?

Make sure the reforestation company you work with asks you about your goals for you and your family and helps you develop a plan to achieve those. They should communicate with you in a clear, transparent way the facts and data that support their claims.

Ask about their quality control and tracking systems to make sure they are delivering you the high quality seedlings you expect.

They should be able to deliver what you want, where you want it, when you want it. And your reforestation company should commit to being there for advice and support after planting until first thinning. You are in this for the long haul – they should be too.
